Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will on Wednesday unveil details of his government’s plan to make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory in the public service and for travellers within Canada, a source tells CBC News.

The information comes from a senior government source, who spoke to CBC News on the condition of anonymity because this person is not authorized to speak publicly.

The announcement is expected to include details of how the mandates will be enforced and when they will go into effect.

Trudeau and Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland are expected to speak about the plan at a news conference scheduled for 11 a.m. ET on Wednesday.
